Sometimes, all I really want is a cookie - and yesterday was one of those days. A few months back, I treated myself to the Sprouted Kitchen cookbook. When the cookie craving hit, I knew that SK would have something to suggest.

ALMOND MEAL COCONUT COOKIES // makes about 15 cookies

Adapted from Sprouted Kitchen

Preheat the oven to 375.


1 1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded or flaked coconut
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

What to do:

In a large bowl, stir together the almond meal, chocolate chips, coconut, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg until it doubles in volume; add the oil and vanilla and whisk until combined.
At the wet ingredients to the dry, mix to combine, and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Once the dough is chilled, using your hands, roll into 1" balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet - leaving enough room for the cookies to grow in size. Gently press the dough ball to flatten it slightly.
Bake for 7-10 minutes until the edges are golden; transfer to wire rack and let cool.
